COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nils Oscar Brown Ale är en rödbrun överjäst öl med rik maltkaraktär. Den har en lätt knäckig ton från karamellmalt, en rostad avslutning samt balanserad beska från de båda humlesorterna Fuggles och Amarillo. Nils Oscar Brown Ale passar utmärkt till mustiga grytor, grillat kött och även sallad. Naturligtvis går det alldeles utmärkt att njuta av en Nils Oscar Brown Ale utan något som helst till. Det kan hända att en vacker utsikt och en skön fåtölj kan förbättra stunden något, men det ska vi låta vara osagt. Drick och njut!

lusikka (5937) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2010
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a frothy, natural white head. Leaves a lacing on the glass. Aroma of bread, toasted malts and nuts. Flavour of toasted malts, bread, dried fruits and grass. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Dryish mouthfeel. Nothing special but quite decent.

TET (1544) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2010
Dark brown beer with weak and beige head. Roastiness, some toffeeish sweetness with some vegetables and black coffee. Flavour is quite roasted, some coffee and taste from pineforest without bitterness, interesting. Quite a lot of carbonation with light body. Quite interesting beer, but I think that this beer could be better. Anyway, personal and worth to try.

Mad_Ferret (618) - SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2010
Quite dark clear red/brown colour. Off white head. Aroma is is quite hoppy with grassy, slightly caramelly notes over a malty background. Taste is also quite hoppy with a malt backbone. Bitter, sour, caramel notes. Some weed. Medium body.

FatPhil (8996) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 18, 2010
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
6 Rich brown ale aroma, fair amount of dark bitter hops standing out.
4 Rich mahogany, brief off-white head.
7 Lovely hoppy retronasals. Rich roasty body, fairly burnt for a brown ale, but a nice kind of sour brown ale mash taste too.
4 Full palate but refreshingly carbonated. Lovely full roasted finish, and a great hoppy tingle too later.
13 All-round solid brown ale, with a modern Scandinavian twist. Wanted more.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle 0,33 l. Clear brown, short beige head. Nose is malty, some dry coffee and cocoa. Flavor is pretty light and could pass as a dark lager or dryish dunkel. Doesn’t pack the full chocolate and coffee notes that I usually like in my brown ales. Not a bad beer, but mediocre for the style. Fizzy carb, quite light body.

gnoff (7664) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2010
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget.
BB March 2011, sampled on October 8, 2010.
Clear dark reddish brown color. Big lasting tan head. Malty,s weet, bready, hoppy scent lined with some fruit esters and also some phenoles. Rubber tubing, plastic and also some smoke in the nose. Licght acidic, grainy, roasted, coffee, dry, bitter taste. Medium mouthfeel with a very dry finish. Medium bitterness. Phenolic and somewhat fruity aftertaste.
I think I’m getting sensitive to the yeast, or some of the yeast, that they use at Nils Oscars. Can’t say I’ve enjoyed some of their latest beers I’ve tried, too heavy on the acidity and the phenoles.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2010
(Bottled) Clear dark cola brown with a small, firm and beige head. Sourish, roasted malt dominates the flavor, along with some black coffee. Flavor is roasted-malty, lightly burned, with sour coffee notes. Quite thin body with lowish carbonation. Failed to find Fuggles or Amarillo here - a plain and thin, slightly burned brown ale. 3343

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown with a tan head. Nice caramel aroma. Well-balanced caramel and toffee flavours that are not too sweet. To be enjoyed.
